Vendors contacted: SAP

Class: Unauthorized Access [CWE-284]
Impact: Unauthorized access to some functions
Remotely Exploitable: Yes
Locally Exploitable: No

CVSS Information
CVSS Base Score: 3.5 / 10
CVSS Base Vector:

An authenticated user can use the functions of XML Data Archiving
Service access to which should be restricted. This may result in
privilege escalation.

Other versions are probably affected too, but they were not checked.

To correct this vulnerability, install SAP Security Note 1945215.

Alexander Polyakov (ERPScan)

It is possible to call some of the DAS files without authorization
because they do not check if a user is authorized to access some of
the JSPs.

Most JSPs have authorization checks:

String authorization = (String) session.getAttribute("AuthRequHead");
if (authorization == null)
authorization = "";

But in 3 JSPs those checks are not included:


It means that an anonymous user can call those JSPs.

The most critical one is cas_enter.jsp.

We can create any archiving directory and also:
1) Check if there is any file or directory on the server by analyzing
the response while creating an archive store
2) Perform an SMBRelay attack by putting something like
\\remotehost\aa into the Windows root variable
3) Potentially make HTTP calls and other calls while using WebDav
